Tom Hanks on the writers strike in Hollywood

Television, movie and streaming show writers began striking on May 2 after negotiations between their union, Writers Guild of America, and Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers.

In an interview with PBS NewsHour about his new book, “The Making of Another Major Motion Picture Masterpiece,” actor, filmmaker and union member Tom Hanks acknowledged his support of the union’s ongoing strike.

“There is a win-win circumstance here that can only come about when everybody is paid their fair share,” Hanks said.
